|LEARNING GOALS||LEVEL IV
|Global Self-Awareness||Effectively addresses significant issues in the natural and human world based on articulating one’s identity in a global context.
||Evaluates the global impact of one’s own and others’ specific local actions on the natural and human world.||Analyzes ways that human actions influence the natural and human world.||Identifies some connections between an individual’s personal decision making and certain local and global issues.|
|Perspective Taking||Evaluates and applies diverse perspectives to complex subjects within natural and human systems in the face of multiple and even conflicting positions (i.e. cultural, disciplinary, and ethical).
||Synthesizes other perspectives (such as cultural, disciplinary, and ethical) when investigating subjects within natural and human systems.||Identifies and explains multiple perspectives (such as cultural, disciplinary, and ethical) when exploring subjects within natural and human systems.||Identifies multiple perspectives while maintaining a value preference for own positioning (such as cultural, disciplinary, or ethical).|
|Cultural Diversity||Adapts and applies a deep understanding of multiple worldviews, experiences, and power structures while initiating meaningful interaction with other cultures to address significant global problems.||Analyzes substantial connections between the worldviews, power structures, and experiences of multiple cultures historically or in contemporary contexts, incorporating respectful interactions with other cultures.
||Explains and connects two or more cultures historically or in contemporary contexts with some acknowledgement of power structures, demonstrating respectful interaction with varied cultures and worldviews.||Describes the experiences of others historically or in contemporary contexts primarily through one cultural perspective, demonstrating some openness to varied cultures and worldviews.|
|Personal and Social Responsibility||Takes informed and responsible action to address ethical, social, and environmental challenges in global systems and evaluates the local and broader consequences of individual and collective interventions.
||Analyzes the ethical, social, and environmental consequences of global systems and identifies a range of actions informed by one’s sense of personal and civic responsibility.||Explains the ethical, social, and environmental consequences of local and national decisions on global systems.||Identifies basic ethical dimensions of some local or national decisions that have global impact.|
|Understanding Global Systems||Uses deep knowledge of the historic and contemporary role and differential effects of human organizations and actions on global systems to develop and advocate for informed, appropriate action to solve complex problems in the human and natural worlds.
||Analyzes major elements of global systems, including their historic and contemporary interconnections and the differential effects of human organizations and actions, to pose elementary solutions to complex problems in the human and natural worlds.||Examines the historical and contemporary roles, interconnections, and differential effects of human organizations and actions on global systems within the human and the natural worlds.||Identifies the basic role of some global and local institutions, ideas, and processes in human and natural worlds.|
|Applying Knowledge to Contemporary Contexts||Applies knowledge and skills to implement sophisticated, appropriate, and workable solutions to address complex global problems using interdisciplinary perspectives independently or with others.
||Plans and evaluates more complex solutions to global challenges that are appropriate to their contexts using multiple disciplinary perspectives (such as cultural, historical, and scientific).||Formulates practical yet elementary solutions to global challenges that use at least two disciplinary perspectives (such as cultural, historical, and scientific).||Defines global challenges in basic ways, including a limited number of perspectives and solutions.|
